Take a close look because it's the last toy we'll be buying for a long time
We bought this big fancy-ass barbeque just before we did our taxes.
DUMB. DUMB. DUMB.
So we're going to end up living under a bridge, but at least we'll have this nice shiny barbeque to keep us warm. And we'll be able to grill up some tasty squirrels.

I thought I saw my arch-nemesis in Safeway today, but he was a different old man with an oxygen tank! If I can remember where I put my post about the time I got into a fight with the old man with the oxygen tank in Safeway, I'll post a link.

WOW! That is a niccce toy! I like my steaks well done please.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I'm afraid it's going to be squirrel steaks only from now on, but we can do them up really nicely for you, Barbara W.

Jas Bhambra said...

Ha ha,squirrel stakes! I am sure Sputnik can get the squirrel part, Jerry can do the rest!

That sure is a cool looking BBQ, though!

Jacquie said...

As Cosmo Kramer would say "SWEET FANCY MOSES". That is a nice toy! Enjoy it...too bad about your taxes..

michelle said...

Ah no, that grill qualifies for a big fucking jesus. I hope Jerry hunts, like, elephant or something to take up all that massive cooking heat!

That's impressive Barbara. I'm jealous. In a good way. god.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Good idea, Jas. I never thought of recruiting Sputty. She can keep us supplied all summer. You know she won't be catching us any of those big rabbits that live around here though; she gives them a lot of respect and room.

SFM indeed, Jacquie. Kramer always knows just what to say.
One of these years we will be prepared for tax time. Yeah right.

At first I thought you meant grilling a big fucking jesus, Michelle, but that's just kinda icky. Elephant is a good plan though. Do they allow hunting at the zoo, do you know?

I'm going to have to send this picture to Larry....he will be soooo jealous! Think Jerry could bring it along on the manly fishing trip? lol

Tydes Perdition said...

New barbeque... woodpecker problem. I see these two topics coming together into one awesome solution.

Will said...

Whoa!!! That totally looks like a barbeque from outer space. I think we have just entered ... the future. Don't feel so bad - it looks cool as hell.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Good idea, Bev, send the picture to Larry. Let's see if we can instigate a little rivalry amongst the husbands. Good for hours of fun!

It could be an interesting summer, Jeff. Got any good woodpecker recipes you'd like to share?

I totally feel like a Jetson, Will. I always knew I would someday.

WolfHeart RavenHorse said...

All Larry said was "when's the BBQ". So, I am guessing he wants to come to dinner! lol Nothing like a self invite!

Secretly, I know he wants one too....I have to push the rivalry a little harder! Perhaps I should send the pictur to Grant.....

Kellee said...

Nice grill baby! ;)
Leave the squirrels alone and stick to beating up the elderly with respiritory ailments...KICK SOME OXYGEN TANK BARBARELLA!!!!
hahahaha
xoxoxoxo

Maureen said...

I am soooooooooooo jealous - that would look great on my deck overlooking the bay and fields of hay while the sun sets and I'm drinking a cold one, sigh.

Barbara said...

I will fly over with the Montreal steak spices. I will stop by your Safeway with the cute clerks to pick up some steaks. I will even bring the homemade wine. Anything else you want me to bring?

John Mutford said...

I actually have a recipe book with a recipe for squirrels. Alas, it's a slow cooker recipe. Too bad.

And don't get me started on friggin' taxes.

To Those Who Annoy Me said...

Kudos on the fancy-ass BBQ, Barb! I am SOOOO jealous...hope to get an invite for some squirrel kabobs this summmer!!

Barbara said...

Barbara B.!
Our buddy George read my letter on The Hour. Re: the F word.
Cool. This almost makes up for being dropped from the blog tracker...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Bev, he knows he wants one! He really really does. We absolutely have to tell Grant and Todd as well so that they can spend way too much money too.

I actually have nothing against squirrels, Kellee, but they are an easier target than the oxygen tank brigade.

haha you sound really jealous too, Maureen. I get to look at the fence and the back lane, so there.

Homemade wine sounds superb, Barbara W! We like our wine! And we do use Montreal Steak Spice - it's the best.
So George read your email on the Hour tonight? How cool is that? I'm going to watch it in 5 minutes, so I'll look out for it. Pity about the blogtracker though; for some reason I'm still on it.

If anyone would have a recipe book with squirrel recipes, for some reason I would suspect it would be you, John. You must have a book for everything!
Did you get a nice little letter from Canada Reads as well?

Jamie, you and the boys are definitely on the list for squirrel-kabob invites. The furry boys must bring a nice hostess gift for Sputty though.

Stephanie said...

that is like gigantor the barbeque
think of how many corns you could make on there
yum

Barbara Bruederlin said...

hahaha Stephanie - Gigantor, that's great! We were calling it Big Knob (cause it has big knobs) but Gigantor is totes better.

kelly said...

i think i want a beer on your deck maureen

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Me too, Kelly! We all want a beer on your deck, Maureen.

kelly said...

yayyyyyyyy...party on maureen's deck and she's bbq'ing for us...i'm soooooooooo excited

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Me too! I don't have to bring my bbq though, do I?

Maureen said...

If you make it down here I'll not only bbq I'll supply the beer!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I'll be there at 6:00, Maureen.

John Mutford said...

I didn't get a letter from Canada Reads, what's that about? I did notice in my counter that they had googled my site though.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

John, maybe I got a letter from Canada Reads because I had tossed off the remark in my blog that everyone's emails got posted on their website. They actually let me know that they received over 300 emails that week and therefore only posted a small percentage. So we are in good company, my friend.

Maureen said...

Ahem, I can't keep the beer cold or the bbq hot much longer!!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh no, Maureen - am I late for supper? Is it too late to get a doggy bag then?
